this movie was far, far sadder than I expected. I don't think she wanted to push people away and be hurtful. I think she wanted to be loved but just ... couldn't. What did you think?
Was it that she'd been hurt too often? That she'd grown up with such an adult burden on her shoulders? Her harshness and specific demands kind of reminded me of myself, although I love the color red ;)
I read that at a Q and A, her grandson said something about how she died loving no one and no one loving her. That's the saddest statement I'd ever heard.
